    Great article and very true to life. I also enjoyed the bit about the feathered gowns, tan, lashes, and makeup as battle armor. Not to mention I long since lost count of the number of times I have explained to my athlete friends that dancing a round of rhythm is like 5 90-second sprints in a row...in heels and a skirt...
